Battery Notifications in i3

I am using i3 window manager for the last seven months, and it has been a pleasant and productive experience so far. There were a few hiccups here and there, but that is expected with such minimalistic setups. One thing that I never noticed was the lack of notifications on critical battery levels.

Arch Linux Installation Guide Part 2

In this post, I will continue from my last post and set up my newly installed Arch Linux for daily use. I am going to install some applications that I use on a day to day basis. Some of these applications are required for my current dotfile configuration setup to work properly. The choice of applications is highly opinionated and your preferences might be different.

Arch Linux Installation Guide Part 1

Arch Linux is a Linux distribution known for its not-so-beginner-friendly command line installer, no ready-to-use system after installation and requirement of above average knowledge of command line.

If you do not already have these keys with you, I will describe the process of creating the keys. SSH Generating an SSH key pair provides you with a public key and a private key.
